We stayed here a couple nights in a room with two twin beds. The staff was very sweet and friendly, and really went out of their way to help us. The room was clean, the shower nice. My only complaint is that for $80/night, they could have at least given us a bar of soap. Instead, they have a sign...

Probably the best (and definitely the most floral) hostel we stayed in during a month in China. A bit pricier than some places, but it was a pleasure to stay there and the staff were very helpful. The location is great, in the heart of buzzing Nanluoguxiang.

The place is ok, the decor is ok (but far from chinese-inspired), the staff is helpful and the location close by Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City is just perfect, but the price of a room and the prices in the on location cafe is just too high.

Bike for rent=broken The Peking cafe=terrible service and overpriced Rooms: really nice equipments Toilets: better than expected Environment: really lovely My advice: you can pay around 13 pounds per night (dorm), but please dont go to the cafe the service is really disappointed and you can have the same food for less around the city. And enjoy beijing !

The place is very well located and full of flowers, that make you feel good after a day of walking arround. The street is famous and crowded, full of shops and restaurants. The metro is 2 min away, the hutongs everywhere arround and the Forbidden city not far at all. The staff is friendly (but it could be better). We...

As a comparison, we stayed in November at the Inn of Double Happiness, which is less well located but has rooms of considerable style and comfort for about the same price as a plain but satisfactory room here. And because a really good breakfast is included at the Double Happiness, it's much better value. I just checked on the prices...

I'll admit it - I had low expectations when I signed myself up for a room with four single beds and two bunk beds for a very affordable nightly rate, but I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. The room was the cleanest and nicest of any dorm room I've stayed - and nicer than many hotels too -...

Stayed here for two nights. Although the room was very small, it was comfortable, warm and the bathroom was modern and clean- one of the best I have seen in China so far. Disappointing that we could not access the rooftop terrace. I found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful, although my friend who I was traveling with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A lively hostel! If you like to be surrounded by flowers, and if you like to feel like home when you travel, this is the right place for you!Peking International Youth Hostel is situated at the most charming and popular Hutong Conservative District in Beijing - the south of Nanluoguxiang. It is located near the very heart of the city, in the Dongcheng District. The alley's north end is enclosed by Gulou and Zhonglou. A little south-west at the end of the alley, is the middle axis of Beijing where the Jingshan Park, the Forbidden City and the Tiananmen Square sits along. The gorgeous night time attraction sites, Houhai, Qianhai and Shishahai is just to the west of the alley, in a distance that should take you around only 10 to 15 minutes walk through Yu'er Hutong. ... more   less
